Stayed for one night (6 November 2012). The hotel is in a great location and has old world charm. We arrived off an international flight very early in the morning and were able to easily walk to the hotel from Circular quay, the hotel staff were very helpful and arranged to store our bags for us and allowed us to use a shower room to freshen up and change after our long flight. The staff also gave us great advise about what to visit and where to eat and allowed us to check into our room very early. We booked the least expensive room with private facilities, the room was at the back of the hotel so although it did not have a view it was very quiet, clean and adequate. If you need air con you would have to upgrade and that starts to get expensive. Breakfast is served in the cocktail bar and was very nice. Some bits of the hotel are a little tired and need a little tlc and I would recommend the rooms with private facilities ( not the smaller rooms with shared facilities) but would use this hotel again when in Sydney for the friendliness, ambience, location and price.
